Year: 1503 (turn 435)
Jolly old England decided to do some New World colonization, the hard way. By fighting natives. Our first target is the Creek.
It.. does not go well. After sending 2400 men to die across the Atlantic, I settle for taking Tallahassee, both allowing access to other tribes and depriving the Creek a port province. It should also be noted that England is facing some serous inflation (of about 1.3%) so we buy farms and ports, as well as build more armies because the more money going to maintenance means the less money I make per turn. GENIUS.
In 1507, I call France into a war against Brittany. It wasn't too hard taking her territory in Northwest France, however, she appeared to have colonized 3 provinces in South America, and 2 tiny islands off the eastern coast of Madagascar. But I didn't know this until 10 turns later.
In 1511, Norway and 3 other tribal nations declare war on me. I chiefly focused on the Norwegian front and peaced out with the others in 3 turns.
After some easily conquered islands of the coast of Scotland, capturing Iceland, and annexing Norway, we end this chapter in 1514.
So here we are in 1462. Castile decides to call me into a war against Portugal.
It goes well. Then Grenada of all people declare on me. So after finishing up with Portugal we smash the shit out of Grenada, and I take the province across the Strait of Gibraltar.
Between 1469 and 1470 I take out the rest of the Irish Minors.
Because I like France, and Burgundy is a wanker. I pay Burgundy to declare on France and we begin French expansion into Europe.
The 41 points are dolled out below.
Starting in 1440, Richard begins building markets, farms and a library to increase income. In 1444 we began our Irish Unification Wars, with our opening move against Osraige in 1444.
In 1448 I allied Castile, a major power on the Iberian Peninsula. I was lucky that Morocco declared before. I did NOT want to deal with a war against Morocco. In 1451, Castile and I joint declared against France. After 3 years of conflict, we peaced out in 1454
Castile gained 8 Provinces, I gained Paris and I vassalized France. In 1455 I annexed Thomond, and in 1458 I annexed Desmond and Munster in two separate war declarations. I retook Belfast and conquered Ulster in 1459.
